The Parliament of Uganda has secured spacious office space for new Members of Parliament at the Kampala Kingdom plaza just days after the inauguration of the 11th parliament.
The 11th Parliament has seen the number of MPs increase to 529 MPs with over 100 news legislators joining the August prompting the need for more office space.
According to the Director of Communications at Parliament, Ms. Helen Nanteza Kawesa, acquisition of the spacious modern space at the Kingdom Kampala plaza will see a total of 323 MPs get private offices while they transact business in parliament.
“We are renting space at Kampala Kingdom building, and we are in the process of procuring the furniture,” said Kawesa .
Kingdom Kampala is located on Nakasero Hill, an upscale neighborhood in Kampala, the capital and largest city of Uganda. The piece of property where the Kingdom is located is bordered by Nile Avenue to the north, Yusuf Lule Road to the east, and De Winton Road to the south. The National Theater and Uganda Broadcasting Corporation border the location to the west.
The hotel complex is being erected on a 15 acres (6.1 ha) site that was previously occupied by Shimoni Teacher Training College, which was relocated to Kitikifumba in Kira Municipality.
